LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - "We've been getting a lot of calls and walk in. We're trying to keep it easy on them because they're already going through a hard time. You gotta take it easy and friendly and be accommodating," said Amanda Guillen, with Texas Inn & Suites.
One evacuee said he realized early on that Harvey wasn't going to be a regular storm.
We loaded up two of our five ton trucks with supplies that would accommodate two hundred evacuees. That an evacuation center would need to function properly and take care of evacuees," said Brian Crews, a commandant with the Lufkin Marina Corps League.
They have loaded items such as cots, blankets water and other personal items.
Even though Mills is above ground with his family at a Lufkin hotel, he hopes his neighbors back home are safe.
"We're thankful that we're not going through what some of the people are going through and as a retired pastor I'm praying for all these people," Mills said.
Crews said they will deliver two truck loads of supplies, enough to take care of 200 more evacuees on Monday.
